Our #1 Napa Cab From Last Year – The New Vintage Pre-Sell

The New Vintage Release

2016 Purlieu “Le Pich”

Napa Cabernet Sauvignon

“Le Pich features very pretty notes of crushed blueberries, blackberries and chocolate-covered cherries with hints of violets and cedar chest plus a waft of bay leaves. Medium to full-bodied, packed with vibrant black fruits and plushy textured, this buxom beauty is ready for biz, finishing satisfyingly long and spicy.”-LPB


A Highly Rated Syrah From Jeff Cohn (JC Cellars)

From acclaimed Rhone Winemaker Yves Cuilleron in a joint venture with Jeff Cohn of JC Cellars from one of the top vineyard sites in Sonoma (Rockpile AVA)

2013 JC Cellars Domaine des Chirats Syrah

This wine is dark, with hues of red and purple that are opaque in saturation. Aromatics of wild herbs stimulate the senses as you meander to a sweet nose of black cherry, blackberries, cassis, and liquid minerals. A harmonious balance of tannins, acidity, concentrated black fruits, and roasted Herbes de Provence, yield to a bold and lengthy finish. Not French, not California, but pure Rockpile Syrah.


The Best Deal in Oregon Pinot – RoseRock Pinot Noir

2015 Domaine Drouhin – RoseRock Pinot Noir

Eola-Amity Hills, Willamette Valley, Oregon

Another amazing pinot noir that shows such purity of the fruit. Blueberries, raspberries, lemons, oranges and hints of caramel. Medium to full body, incredibly polished texture and a beautiful, exciting finish. Drink now or hold.


A Highly Rated Super-Tuscan

From the Heart of Tuscany comes a Super-Tuscan
Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc

I Guisti & Zanza Costa Toscana Dulcamara 2015

What a delicious nose that showcases both freshness and depth of flavor. It offers up blackcurrant compote, dark cherries, licorice, five spices, fresh herbs and Chinese spices. Full body, structured and firm tannins and a delightful interplay of fruit and acid. Juicy yet refined. Drink in 2021. Made from organically grown grapes.


From one of the First Families of Barbaresco

2015 Paitin Barbaresco Serraboella

Hay, freshly cut grass and loam aromas segue to a core of cherry that pulls this together. The sweet fruit handles the burly tannins well, ending in a cascade of eucalyptus and tobacco notes. Best from 2023 through 2043. -B.S.

A Highly Rated Chateauneuf From Vieux Telegraphe

Domaine Du Vieux Telegraphe Chateauneuf-du-Pape Telegramme 2016
Very complex and composed. Bright aromas of wild, red-berries and herbs. Some blueberry pastry, too. Plush, ripe and concentrated palate with long, smooth, ripe and powerful tannins. Great depth and detail. Fresh, red-berry and plum flavours run riot on the finish. Drink or hold.


#19 Top 100 Wine Spectator Chianti Classico

SAN FELICE Chianti Classico 2016
Expressive and smooth, this hits all the right notes, with pure black cherry, black currant and violet flavors. Touches of earth, iron and tobacco add complexity. Shows best from 2020 through 2036. 25,000 cases made. -B.S.
